‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′ Tops Worldwide Weekend Box Office with $340.9 Million Opening!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 topped the worldwide weekend box office with $340.9 million opening, including $141.3 million domestically from 4,070 theaters and $199.6 million internationally from 61 markets. It’s the best global opening in the history of the franchise, thanks to massive international business.
In North America, Breaking Dawn 2 wasn’t able to match the $142.8 million opening of The Twilight Saga: New Moon on the same weekend in 2009, but it did open ahead of the $138.1 million grossed by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 on the same weekend last year, thanks in part to especially strong Saturday traffic and an A CinemaScore.
Overseas, Breaking Dawn 2 opened well ahead of previousTwilight films in almost every territory.
Breaking Dawn 2 drew more males than any previous title in the series, who made up 21 percent of those buying tickts. In terms of age, 50 percent of the audience was 25 years and older, reflecting the aging fanbase.
